Anyway, I surprised myself by actually completing it within a decent time. Much respect to the folks in the office who actually ran the 10k and not brisk-walked the entire way. Soon after, we were talking about participating in more sporting, team-building events. One of which was the first ever Spartan Race to be held in Dubai.
We signed up thinking it would be fun to get involved, not realizing it actually requires some sort of effort. And training! We lacked that last one terribly. It wasn’t really until we were in the race that we realized just how serious these obstacle course racers were!

First achievement of the day: turning up on time! Yay!
